High Energy Neutrinos from Charm in Astrophysical Sources
Presented by Prof. Ina SARCEVIC
We present results for neutrino fluxes from astrophysical sources. We show that charm production enhances a flux of very high energy neutrinos from astrophysical sources with jets driven by central engines, such as gamma ray bursts or supernovae with jets. The neutrino flux from semi-leptonic decays of charmed mesons is subject to much less hadronic and radiative cooling than the conventional flux from pion and kaon decays and therefore has a dominant contribution at higher energies, of relevance to future ultrahigh energy neutrino experiments.
